Should You Invest in An Invisible Fence

While having an invisible fence may seem like a good idea, I have heard some not so good reasons to get one installed.  Yes, it can keep your pets in your yard but it can not keep other predators out of your yard. Please, always be in the yard with your pets while they are in the yard that has invisible fences

“Just raising a concern about “invisible fences” – we understand that some owners use them and will continue to use them. Please be very aware that while they may contain your dog, they will not keep other animals/predators from entering your yard. Be particularly cautious at night – when uninvited guests can’t be seen & when your dog may be tempted to breach the perimeter to chase an animal.
NOT MEANT FOR DEBATE- just as a reminder to be always vigilant.”

Here is another story

Here’s a lesson for those of you using, or considering, invisible fencing.

I got a call from my vet last night: her daughter had put her dogs in the yard when she got home from school, and an hour later, one of them, a terrier mix, was missing. She told me that she thought a coyote had grabbed him.

I ran over with my infrared camera, as it was after dark. It took us over an hour, but, we found him a couple hundred yards from home. He had fought off the coyote and most likely tried to get home. The shock collar around his neck had prevented his return, so he went back into the woods to lay down to die. When we found him he was pretty torn up with a temp of 94°F. It looks like we got to him just in time.

Invisible fencing is not going to keep animals, or other threats out of your yard. If your dog runs through the barrier in pursuit of a critter, he’s going to get corrected by that collar if he tries to get back. Please don’t even think about installing this: especially for greyhounds.
